It doesn’t surprise me that Law & Order: SVU addressed the “legitimate rape” thing in an episode. Anyone who’s as familiar with rape as I imagine those writers must be can’t let BS like that stand. And that’s exactly what it is, complete and utter bullshit.
It happens. I saw a 14 year-old girl testify in family court against her rapist (a family friend), and she was six or seven months pregnant with his child. She was keeping it. And this is not the only example that I’ve seen.
Moral of the story is, if you’re ignorant about rape and can’t understand basic human biology, don’t talk about like you know anything about it. Because if you do Law & Order: SVU will mock you.
And you deserve it.12 notes
